SFPL Music: Nelly Goes Country Again, Covers Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man”

nelly-dahm

Nelly is normally busy on the set of his BET reality show, Nellyville and on the comedic parody Real Husbands of Hollywood. But today, the “Country Grammar” rapper dusts off his cowboy boots and covers Thomas Rhett‘s “Die A Happy Man,” of course, adding a little hip-hop flavor to the mix.

Nelly is no stranger to the country side of things, as he’s collaborated in the past with Tim McGraw on “Over and Over” [2004] and Florida Georgia Line for a remix of “Cruise” [2013]. Both collabs worked out quite well for Nelly and he’s continuing that genre stretch as he seals yet another hit.
